Abstract

During the past decade percutaneous therapeutic vascular occlusion was performed on 152 occasions in 124 patients. The primary indication for vaso-occlusive therapy was acute or recurrent bleeding. Upper gastrointestinal bleeding from arterial sources was controlled in 92 percent of patients and acute variceal bleeding in 83 percent. Renal embolization was performed for palliation of severe pain and hematuria from unresectable renal primary or secondary malignancies, to decrease blood loss and facilitate surgery in operable renal tumors, and for ablation of renal function to control chronic protein loss or severe hypertension. Our encouraging experience convinces us that transcatheter embolization is a useful, safe and effective procedure in selected patients. It seems certain that the technique of therapeutic embolization will be improved, its indications extended and its application become commonplace whenever angiographic skills and facilities exist.
